520 cases have an outcome (cure or death)
|Before end of day 3-21|
26,000 total infected today. Feb 3rd to march 21st to reach that number. 48 days. In the next 24 hours over 10,000 new cases. There currently isn't room anywhere for the 26,000 cases we have already. We are on track to double that by Monday.
For Americans: If you have thoughts about our statistically disastrous response, or the people profiting off not sharing information with the public, calling your elected officials is the most powerful thing you can do.
You may phone the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.
Before you die, let your leaders know how you feel about them. It shouldn't matter what political party you belong to.
Let the people who's literal job is to protect you from this know your feelings. They are in charge. They are responsible. This blog is the only tool I have to change things. It's to let you know you can make a difference and be heard.
The American Government is taking action that is causing american deaths.
You have a phone. Speak out!
After you've done that, be sure to contact your loved ones and say goodbye. Many people you know will be gone next year. Stay safe.
HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE & AZITHROMYCIN when taken together can kill you dead, quickly and unpredictably. Using hydroxychloroquine together with azithromycin can increase the risk of an irregular heart rhythm that may be serious and potentially life-threatening.
They are only prescribed together by a doctor, when it's determined that the small, but non-trivial risk of instant death is less dangerous then whatever you have that's killing you.
I'm not even a nurse, and I'm not stupid enough to take a Z-pak with something that fuck with the CNS like that. Saying this will cause American deaths (and probably has already, it doesn't take long for this to kill people).
The reason the survival rate is skewed, is because our medical system is primitive and not geared towards health outcomes. We have failed to test, diagnose and contain the illness. Because of this many people are asymptomatic, and are spreading the disease widely. These cases will likely have positive outcomes, but millions of the unknown hundreds of millions worldwide and currently infected without knowing won't.
People will not say it like this, because they don't want people to panic. It's not all bad. The last time a plague was this serious, it increased the value of labor and caused the end of feudalism.
Take time to say good-by and spend time with loved ones. Stay home.
I hope to see you on the other side.
